A group of political and religious leaders organized an interfaith gathering Monday in response to the Easter Sunday terror attack that killed at least 70 and injured hundreds in Lahore, Pakistan.
Borough President Eric Adams joined Christian and Muslim leaders to condemn the attack.
The spate of recent attacks around the world are an attempt to create fear and turn neighbors against one another, Adams said. He added that when people come together it sends terror groups a strong message.
"We are not going to allow the evil minds of people to divide us along religious grounds," Adams said.
Some of Brooklyn's Pakistani Christians told News 12 they felt persecuted in their home country but have a closer relationship with Pakistani Muslims here in the United States. They said they want to send a message back home that the two groups can live in peace.
